“Excellent, great surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2010

Stayed here feb 2010. This is rural France at it's best. Rooms are simple but the hospitality is first class as was the dining. Ask serge to introduce you to his cognac collection! Family run hotel with a very popular restaurant . Excellent location for touring the Charente region. Would definitely stay here again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2008

This hotel does not really feel like one, more a place with rooms where people stay.
Laundry hanging at the windows. Much favoured by drivers of large vans. Some of the buildings giving on to the courtyard appear to be private residences.
The hotel does have a very large park at the rear. Part of this is given over to mobile homes occupied by Polish workers, who roam around the place.
When I arrived at the hotel, my confirmed reservation had not been registered, however there was a room available. This was quite old and tattered, althrough otherwise okay in a simple sort of way.
The diner was adequate. The Foie Gras starter was the best part, small but excellent. Good breakfast.

  • Disliked — Feeling of motorway service area cafeteria
  • Stayed September 2008
